The area schools can use The Rock as an extension of the class room. A place where students can hunt minerals and fossils. We will be working with Sam Noble Museum of Natural History, Oklahoma Geological Survey - OU, Boone Pickens School of Geology, Dept. of Mines, and numerous Rock Clubs. Then we will have a study sheet to incorporate Math, Science, Art and English aligned with the state testing program. This sight can be used from the simplest math to combinatoric, hyperbolic geometry and alebraic topolopgy. The project will be up dated to meet STEM and STEAM requirement for the students.
